Pool safety is more than knowing CPR and not running around the pool.
Safety is of the utmost importance when it comes to having a pool. Open water poses a hazard when not properly closed off and maintained. This can lead to you becoming liable for any injuries, damages or loss of life in the area.
Pool safety inspections allow you to have peace of mind so you and your family can enjoy your pool without any worries.
All pools, including spas and some portable pools, must now comply with the pool safety standard.
The standard applies to homes with new or existing pools as well as short and long-term accommodation premises. This includes new and existing pools in houses, unit complexes, hotels, motels, backpacker accommodation, caravan parks and mobile van parks.
Compliant pool fences help save lives by stopping children and pets from accessing swimming pool areas.
Maintaining your pool compliance includes more than just testing the water. You must have regular pool fence inspections to ensure your fence is still compliant. There are strict laws about fence height, gate latches and other necessary inclusions.
These regulations are there to keep you and your family safe but can also be a bit of a headache. That’s where we come in.
We can analyse your pool’s compliance so you don’t have to spend hours reading and checking off the QBCC’s compliance checklist. We will check the pool from top to bottom to ensure you meet the regulation requirements.
When we visit your home, we assess the whole pool environment, not just the pool and equipment. The purpose of a pool safety inspection is to evaluate the current condition of all accessible and visible pool components.
We identify items that need fixing to make the pool operational, safe and reasonable to maintain. We also note the condition of the fence, gates, walkway, pool perimeter, deck, rails, coping, lighting, and other items of possible concern.
Occasionally the inspection will reveal that further specialised testing is warranted. But that’s okay, if there is something that warrants repairs, then we can organise this for you without causing you any stress in sourcing someone yourself.
The report summarises our professional evaluation on the condition of the pool and associated accessible equipment. Listed in this report are the recommendations for maintenance and repairs or just any items that you may need to keep an eye on.
